Stayed for 3 nights in May 2013. We arrived late at night, after a 14-hour exhausting bus ride from HCMC, and their staff picked us up in a tuktuk. It took about 10 mins to get to the hotel from the bus station. Hotel is located on a side street, off the national highway, which means there's less noise and has that community feel.
Stayed in Room 105, which had basic amenities (tv, a/c, ref, bathroom, twin beds). Small issues with the room -- water took some time to drain in the shower, and room wasn't well lighted -- but not big deal for us, really. Coffee, tea, hot choco, water are available in the lobby. Shoes, slippers must be left outside the hotel, but the place is secure so you won't worry going around barefoot the next morning.
Pool was a big boon, especially after a very hot day going around Siem Reap's temples. Glad I considered this fact in booking. Felt good to just lounge around the pool and take a cooling dip.
In front of the hotel are the garden and the restaurant where they also serve breakfast. Their food is good and reasonably priced compared to those in Pub St. Garden has small cottages and chairs where you can relax, read a book, or meet other guest.
Pub St. is a 5-10 min tuktuk ride away. Tuktuk from hotel to Pub St. is free. Advisable to have the same tuktuk driver pick you up after and pay the fixed USD 2 fee back to the hotel, than haggle with other drivers in Pub St.
Hotel staff do their very best to accommodate your needs and request. They were very attentive and helpful. They booked our bus ride back to HCMC without a hitch. When I sprained my ankle and asked for an ice bag, Chum (one of the hotel staff) immediately went to the kitchen and got me a big bagful of ice. He was very friendly and made sure we had our breakfast before our left for our early morning trip back to HCMC. Thank you so much, Chum! :)
If I come back or any of my friends will go to Siem Reap, I would definitely recommend this place.
